Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is a high level text, suitable as a reference source, or as an upper level undergraduate or graduate level text.'
The Jounal of Nervous and Mental Disease, June 1991
'... highly recommends that this book should be required reading for psychologists, whose clinical practice involves evaluating or treating brain-injured individuals and/or their families.'

Booknews
In non-technical language, focuses on neurological and psychological therapies--both theory and technique--but also addresses the broad variety of issues that affect survivors, their families, health-care professionals, and the social milieu. The nature of the injury and trauma is described, along with typical post-traumatic patterns and syndromes; several rehabilitation theories, programs and techniques are considered; and the professional and legal aspects of neurobehavioral recovery are examined. Does not deal with comatose situations. No bibliogrpahy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
